    H key finding!

    Well lately it has come to my attention that i would rather do H keys as easy as i do t keys...:tongue: Go my wind druid "druid_phobia"

    As some of you readers may know, there is a certain pattern in the black marsh tower. I was hoping that sum1 might know if there is some kind of a pattern to the arcane sanc to were the summoner can be.

    Not to mention that D-Keys have a very very simple pattern. You could probably run Nihl in...what, 30 seconds? Watch out for that temp-ban, it's a mean...thing.

    I think the summoner is totally random 1/4 chance of finding him first go.I tried looking for clues to which route he is but came up blank.
    The contess is fast once you find the tower..slow part is finding the tower.
    Nihli if you can run him is the fastest.

    -lose the merc (or just his weapon, so he won't kill anything)
    -get some item with "slain monsters rest in peace" mod (nature's peace is rather popular and not too expensive...)
    -some % damage reduction is nice for those suicide minions (nihlatak can still use corpse explosion on their bodies...)

    He means : a way to find the right direction, by watching the textures or patterns in the tower (like in Nihlathak's temple). But I fear there's none in this very case :rolleyes:.

    Once you're in the tower it's easy. The room to the next level is always left compared to the room you entered from. Simple example:

    Edit: Ahh, screw it, I can't get my ghetto map to look right

    Sometimes it's a lot more complicated but as a general rule, I turn left until I'm heading in that direction.

    Just like meph in hell and norm... It's always to the left of the way your char is facing. Well 90% of the time anyway.

    As for Arcane, someone told me that they always go top left then bottom right. And they usually find the summoner, if not they go top right then bottom left.

    Use CtA, come at him fast and hard so he gets interrupted and can't cast CE. If you get amp damage on you, get the fack out.

    I run him with a hammerdin, average time is about a minute, and he's gotten me about three times so far, all were when he had amp damage on me and 2 were when this stupid... indescribably stupid kid kept joining my 2-minute run games to beg for items, doubling the CE damage (with the monster's life).

    My tactic when I reach Nihlas room is to draw as many of the monsters away from him as possible.Run in up to close to him and then back down one of the side corridors.If you have amp on you then take some of the monsters out here away from nihla.When hes not surrounded ...hammer him.This avoids him teleporting out of a group of monsteres and leaving you as ce cannon fodder.

    My tactic is to teleport past nihl, into a corner, then namelock him with meteors until he's dead. Only about 2 monsters can hit you at a time then.

    I run him with a fishymancer - stand just outside the entrance to the room, hold down CE after skellies kill one guy and the CE chain kills everything including Nihlfart. Total time from waypoint to killing him is maybe a minute tops if you have Enigma.
